Arthur Askey starts in this WWII era British Comedy. Mismatched travellers are stranded overnight at a lonely rural railway station. They soon learn of local superstition about a phantom train which is said to travel these parts at dead of night, carrying ghosts from a long-ago train wreck in the area.

Not a bad little mystery
A little Arthur Askey can go a long way, but this is a fun little spooky mystery. The scenes in which the creepiness comes to the fore are well done.

And to think this was written by Arnold ridley. Dear old pvt Godfrey in dad's army. He never made much money out of it because he sold the rights to the play and lost the royalties.

Good comedy for whole family
Four stars for overall movie, but some of the comedy scenes are some of the funniest bits I've seen and should be better known. Very rarely doe my husband and son have the same taste in comedy, but this was quite funny.

Very enjoyable movie. Worth watching especially on a stormy night.

There is no doubt that Askey is a comedic genius if you can get past the fact that he is like an irritating fly that won't stop buzzzzing around your ears. This guy is like your annoying kid brother who wants to tag around everywhere you go.

I remember watching this as a child in the seventies. An enjoyable way to spend a wet afternoon.
It's a good solid piece of british cinema. Good character performances,a good old-fashioned ghost story,scooby-doo style, with lots of 1950's black humour thrown in, as well as a bit of suspense.

Fun story and performances.
Loved it, especially the scene of Arthur Askey and his pal trying to get the girl's attention on the train. Very upbeat, enjoyable film.
